The decision to take the IAR Assessments has finally been made. Chelsea students will be taking these assessments during the month of April. Fourth graders will take three ELA tests and three Math tests. Our curriculum prepares the students for these assessments, however we will practice working with the test tools this month. We will also be working on test taking strategies and completing some practice IAR assessments in order to prepare the students for the upcoming tests.

Week of April 12th - ELA 1, 2, and 3
Week of April 19th - ELA Make-Up Tests
Week of April 26th - Math 1, 2, and 3

This year we will have the Scholastic Book Fair virtually. The dates for the fair will be from Friday, March 12th - Thursday, March 25th. A flier was sent home with information for you as parents. The fair will not be open until the 12th. Below is a link if you are interested in donating money to the classroom for purchasing books. Again nothing is open until the 12th. (The first Scholastic link below is for my classroom orders - not the Book Fair link. The Book Fair Donation link is the second button.)
Governor Pat Quinn signed Erin's Law in January of 2013, which requires all schools in the state of Illinois to provide age appropriate sexual abuse and assault awareness and prevention education programs for students in grades Pre-K through 12. Our lessons for 5th grade students will begin the week of January 18th, 4th grade students will begin the week of January 25th, and 3rd grade students will begin the week of February 1st. The Chelsea Intermediate School Social Workers will be teaching each lesson in the child’s classroom. The "Think First and Stay Safe" program will be the curriculum utilized for these lessons with a focus on Child Lures.
